What does the job title "Anwalt" stand for?

The occupational titles "Anwalt" or "Rechtsanwalt" (Attorney at Law) are legally protected and require a swiss university degree as well as an additional formation as Attorney at Law. The title "Fachanwalt SAV Arbeitsrecht" (Certified Specialist SBA Labour Law) is also protected and is issued to Attorneys at Law by the Swiss Bar Association after additional labour law exams. However, denominations such as "Rechtsberater" (legal counsel), "Rechtsvertreter", "Rechtskonsulent" or "Jurist" are not protected at all.
